"We are grey - we stand between the candle and the star.
We are grey - we stand between the darkness and the light."
(Who said that and in what tv show?)
Well it was certainly grey yesterday. It was the greyest and dullest day we've had for ages, and cold - only 10 degrees C. Fog rolled in overnight and just didn't go away until a cool change blew through after sunset. It was bizarre - we rarely have fog that lasts after about 10am. Nathan said when he was in Seattle, it was like that for a whole week. Ick. I need my sun!
But today it is just as cold but sunny. Sunny is good. Sunny means I can get pictures! Sunny means that I can see stuff easily. Late yesterday afternoon I was trying to work in the garden, doing some weeding and I couldn't actually see the weeds - it was like it was some time after sunset, not 45 minutes before.... LOL
I've finally been able to get some pictures. Y'see when I leave for work, it looks like this at the station:
(Note that a train has just left - the two red lights are up on the signals. It ran EARLY! I missed it. Grr. I got to work half an hour later cos I missed that train and the next one was late.)
though sometimes it looks like this if I look east and it is clear:
And when I get home, the sun has set. Flash-lit shots just don't look as good, I think.
So anyway, here's one thing I finished up this week, well one pair of things:
Some armwarmers for Nathan to wear on his bike. He rides to uni whenever he goes to uni, and he finds it a bit chilly some mornings. Dreamcatcher sent me some GGH Aspen a while ago, and four balls of it have become these. No pattern - I just swatched it out, and started knitting. They are quite slim fitting on the forearms cos I forgot Nathan's arms thicken up pretty much immediately from the wrist, unlike mine (I guess that is a male/female difference). Note that the cables go different ways for the arms. I am pretty proud of that little detail :-)
And here is another thing I am making for Nathan:
the first of a pair of socks out of some Trekking that Chris sent me. I am in the trek-along, but it is hard to post pics of your sock at home instead of on some amazing trail in some pretty place. I am hoping we will go for a drive later today, maybe stay away overnight, and find some good walks to do. :-) The sock will be going with me.
So thanks, guys for donating yarn to this unworthy cause! It is great :-)
I will post pics of the pak'ma'ra/cthulhoid glvoes soon, but since I get so little chance to take shots in daylight, I am going to spread out the pics over more than one post.
